Quincy, MA (PRWEB) June 21, 2012
PrepForward, a leader in teacher certification preparation, has developed ICTSprep solutions to support prospective educators in Illinois to prepare for the rigorous Illinois Certification Testing System (ICTS) Test of Academic Proficiency. This series of innovative, self-paced online courses helps adult learners gain a deep understanding of core concepts.
All applicants for teaching positions in Illinois public schools must demonstrate their mastery of basic skills and content knowledge. Prospective teachers can use these online materials to supplement their undergraduate training, self-assess their readiness for exams, identify potential weaknesses, and enhance knowledge of core concepts in the areas of reading, writing, language arts, and mathematics. PrepForward’s ICTSprep courses are specifically aligned with the new ICTS Test of Academic Proficiency, which recently replaced the ICTS Basic Skills exam.
ICTSprep courses are designed to suit teacher candidates’ varied backgrounds and busy schedules. The courses feature targeted lessons, interactive exercises, full-length ICTS practice tests, detailed explanations for every question, rich diagnostic data, and expert instructor support.
After success working with education programs across Massachusetts, including Boston Public Schools, Boston Teacher Residency Program, Wheaton College, Westfield State, and UMass Boston, PrepForward has released the ICTSprep series of courses. “Our team is proud to support individuals and institutions across Illinois with cost-effective, efficient ways to support K-12 teachers in developing mastery of core concepts,” said Mary Stephens, CEO of PrepForward.
